Light, Flavorful, and Eggless: Bread Making at Its Best with “Eggless Bread”
When it comes to classic recipes, few dishes come close to the deliciousness of bread. Light and fluffy, or crusty and savory, bread can be a delightful appetizer, side, or main dish in many cultures. Today, we’re exploring something a little bit different – but just as delicious – with an eggless bread recipe.
The Joy of Eggless Bread
Eggless bread is a fantastic option for those following vegan or vegetarian diets, as well as anyone who’s allergic to eggs, making it a great allrounder. Not only that, but removing eggs makes breadmaking a simpler, less messy affair! Plus, the absence of eggs means that you can really play around with flavors, adding whatever herbs, spices, and seasonings appeal to your tastes.
Bring on the Burstiness!
This eggless bread recipe pulls together ingredients that are complex yet accessible – think all-purpose flour, yeast, and a generous helping of rosemary for a surprisingly fresh flavor. As an added bonus, the process will fill your kitchen with the most delightful aromas, inviting you to dig in as soon as the bread comes out of the oven.
Time to Dive In!
Ready to get started? Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp dry active yeast
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 cup chopped rosemary
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 cup warm water
Mixing It Up
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add the rosemary to the mixture and stir until evenly distributed. Pour in the olive oil and warm water, stirring vigorously until all the ingredients are fully incorporated. Once the dough comes together and is no longer sticky, turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface.
Knead the dough for about 10 minutes, until it’s smooth and elastic. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover the bowl with a damp dishcloth and let a rise in a warm spot for about an hour, or until it has doubled in size.
Shaping Your Bread
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 2 minutes. Shape the dough into two round loaves and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Preheat oven to 375°F.
Let ‘er Bake
Take a sharp butter knife and make a few shallow 1-inch slits in the top of each loaf. Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack before digging in!
Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labour
Eggless bread has a delightfully light and fluffy texture with subtly savory flavor – and that rosemary aroma is incomparable! Serve your homemade bread warm with butter and other accompaniments, or pair it with a creamy soup for your next meal.
Threads of Tradition
The beauty of breadmaking is that it’s steeped in history – from ancient and modern recipes, to global techniques and flavors. We hope that this eggless bread recipe helps to enrich your breadmaking tradition for years to come!
